      Try to get some Dal from an Indian market. Their lentils are grown in dedicated areas since its  such a large crop for them  Toor Dal is my favorite. If there is no store in your area,  try online.  Never had a problem with   lentils form Indian markets.

       never  heard of  s  komatsu. Whats the location in Tokyo?  If they have a gluten-free diet its becasue they   cater to foreigners.  The rate  of celiac in Japan is opposite of Italy. ALmost know one  knows of it. 
      I never had any problem with any vinegars in Japan.  they  dont put soy sauce on the sushi but will put a sweet sauce on somethings  unagi, anago and other things like mirugaia.  They are shoyu (soy sauce) based and  contain wheat. so no sauce.
      t o explain that you would  just have to say sauce (Sawsuu)  toe ko mugee  allergee  
      sashimi is only fish so no problem -- I eat  way too much rice  and never have  problems from it and also am very sensitive. Stay away from bakeries in train stations!
      grilled fish is ok  she-o dakay  means with salt only.  Iwashi (ee washee) is a kind of sardine which usually does not have shoyou on it. 
      getting  quick  food anywhere  is tough. there are 7-11 and fanily mart shops on every corner but its tough becasue even the onigiri rice  balls have wheat (ko mugi) in them  so you have to be able to read which ones are safe. Ususally the ones with red beans are ok. You can ask some to read it and  ask komugi desu ka -- -- it takes a little getting used too.  Im also vegan so I eat a lot of fruit and veggies but also  go to chinese and indian places -Usually in indian places someone will speak  english and you can get a good palak or curry  but dont  eat japanese curry, its filled  with wheat.   Tell me some of the areas in  tokyo  your going and maybe I can think of some places where you can  eat.  In Kyoto i just  stay at my friends place=, matsubatei ryokan so he knows.. YOu can also try shabushabu just  ask to cook the meat and veggies in  salt water -- if you have your own sauces that  works. there  are a few  health food stores in  yokohama and   even some in ginza to buy  gluten-free sobas and shoyu but they are  hard to find too.
      good luck

      There a few important things to learn -- komugi and allergy -- if you tell that to wait staff that will help. Also bring your own soy sauce with you and plan to eat much  sushi as many other  dishes   use  soy sauce and many other   restaurants are  hard unless you  know Japanese.  
      If your staying in  western style hotels  they wil be able to help you. There are no gluten free restaurants  but a few  health food restaurants in Tokyo.  If you  google health food restaurants in tokyo you'll get a few places and they will understand more  about gluten free.  Also make sure you get the  gluten free dining cars.
      If you can find a high end  soba place and  get juwari soba that is 100% soba and  no problem.  -- you just cant have the sauce that comes with it.  Yuba is special tofu cooked at your table. its fun and taste good although expensive.  dip it in  flavored salts
      you can  drink shochu and sake  but not mugi cha -- nothing with mugi which can be  wheat or barley.
      grilled fish is ok if you can make sure its  shio dake with salt and  not with soy sauce - make sure  -- I could tell you a couple of friends places but they only speak Japanese and are  hard to find.   What hotel in Tokyo will you be at?
      good luck

      There are a couple of Bonefish  restaurants in Skokie, just north of the city with great Gluten Free menus.   Just make sure you call other places first to check what they have.
      have a great trip

      I found Italy much  easier. You can  find many references and lists  online in English form  Italian Celiac Assoc.   you can find  gluten-free items  in plethora of pharmacies and  stories.

      if you make your own onigiri or get them from a restaurant where they are made  fresh it should be ok.   in 30 years i have not seen  malt vinegar or ever had problems with the vinegar there. 
      usually its all rice vinegar and mirin --  also if you look for a place that has  juwari soba -- 100% soba with no  wheta, thats something you can  enjoy -- just  have your own  sauce  or use  soba yu for the sauce.  when I hike i just bring dried and  fresh fruit and sometime onigiri.    have a great trip
